Example text

By calling us to take up our cross, Jesus is inviting us to love Him with everything within us. He is saying, “I invite you to love Me in the same way that I love you. ” Thus, the cross is an invitation to love. To take up my cross is to enter into a reciprocating love relationship with Jesus of awesome proportions. When I take up my cross, I am qualifying for a depth of love relationship that is unparalleled with any love relationship I’ve ever imagined. I am opening myself to God’s dimension of love, and the cross is the best way to express this kind of fiery God-love.

For we do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, of our trouble which came to us in Asia: that we were burdened beyond measure, above strength, so that we despaired even of life. Yes, we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves but in God who raises the dead, who delivered us from so great a death, and does deliver us; in whom we trust that He will still deliver us (2 Corinthians 1:8-10). • Always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body.

Jesus calls us to cast aside all worldly interests and to take up our cross and follow Him because in His infinite love He knows the benefits that await those who do so. You’ve got to see it as a love appeal. To accept His call to the cross is to embark upon an eternal love adventure with the God of the universe. An Equally Fervent Exchange There is nothing Christ wants more than a Bride who will love Him with the same kind of fiery zeal with which He loves her. The letter to the church of Laodicea in Revelation 3 is one of the most terrifying passages in the entire Bible.
